Bonnie's Eye Surgeries

Hi.  I'm a retired nurse trying to survive on a pension with my husband, high-school age child, two adult children, and my elderly mother.  Our credit is not sufficient at this time to qualify for a loan.  And my eyes are getting to the 'legally blind' stage with cataracts and glaucoma in both eyes.  I'm getting afraid to drive at night.  I am scheduled for surgery October 19th which is next week.  I guess that will be cancelled until I can come up with the cash.  I need both eyes done.  Each surgery will be to replace the lens and install a stent for the glaucoma.  The second surgery is projected for November.  We'll see.  If anyone out there can afford to help me, thankyou so much!  I would like to keep my vision in my old age so I can continue to make paper mache masks, crochet, read, do photography, volunteer as literacy tutor, and take care of my family and aging mother.
